Subway for Moving Sidewalks.
Strap-hanging in street cars and tlio
general congestion of Intcrurban tra
vel will bo al nu end It tlio Invention
of a Now York man, who Is backed by
Iiromlnont capitalist of that city,
proves as successful as Is anticipated.
Attracted to tlio conditions of the
Urooklyn brldgo, whoro during tlio
rush hours tho traction cotnpanlos en
deavor to transport 60,000 passengers
an hour, with facilities which 45,000
tax to tho utmost, ho evolved a
schema basod to an oxtont on tho
moving sldowalk which was a fcaturo
of tho plor at tho world's fair at Chi
cago In 1893. Ills Idea, explains tho
Technical World, Is to equip tho
Urooklyn brldgo with n sorlos of flvo
moving platforms, ono within nnothor.
Tho outer ono would travel nt tho rnto
of thrco miles an hour, tho second nt
six miles an hour, tho third at nlno
and tho fourth nt twolvo. Tho Inner
one, which ho would opcrato at flftoon
miles nn hour, ho would hnvo equipped
with seats, each holding half a dozen
porsons. To stop from ono platform
to nnothor whllo both wcro In motion
would bo both snfo and easy. With
this system of platforms, moving .
ono direction on ono sldo of tho
brldgo nnd back on tho other, tho In
ventor claims ho can transport 174,000
porsons an hour. As nn economical
method of transportation, tho promot
ers declnro that thero would bo no
motormon, conductors nor brakomon
to pay and that tho exponso for power,
repairs nnd operating forco would bo
loss than for any othor system that Is
In uso to day.
Thero Is always something fascinat
ingly mystorlous about tho govorn
ment secret sorvlco. Tho men engaged
under tho chief aro not known to tho
public nt largo oven by nnmo, and
ono's noxt-donr nolfchbor may bo a
secret sorvlco agent without ono hav
ing any suspicion of his occupation.
Tho secret sorvlco bureau Is attached
to tho treasury department and Is
mnlntnlnod for tho detection at coun
terfeiters nnd for tho protection of tho
person of tho prcsldont. Tho men nro
employed, howovor, by othor depart
ments on a confidential requisition
from tho head of tho department. If
tho attorney goncrnl or tho secrotary
of conimurco and labor needs detec
tives each has needed them In rocent
Investigations tho nocrotnry of tho
treasury has supplied tho men. This
practlco of diverting tho detectives of
tho treasury department from tholi
propor work was objected to In con
gress not long ngo, nnd nn nttompt
was iiado to pravont it. It tho secret
sorvlco men becotno mero detectors of
counterfoltors, much of tho popular
Interest in thorn will dtsnppoar.
